CANCELLED - Free Family Day at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art

A message from the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (Marin MOCA):

With an abundance of caution and care for our family visitors, MarinMOCA will cancel the art-making activities normally planned for Sunday, April 5.  We are still open, and admission will be free for parents with their children. However, we will not be providing the normal art activities in the upstairs gallery. 

The museum is taking precautions to ensure a safe environment, including increased janitorial services and surface disinfection. Fortunately, art may be enjoyed by looking, not touching!

 

Make art, see art, have fun! Come to MarinMOCA’s Free Family Day on the first Sunday of the month from 11am-5pm. A free program which provides art-making opportunities to parents with their children. A fun and educational alternative to “screen time,” the program is taught by professional art instructors in a variety of media – from painting to mixed media to clay. Art supplies are included. Admission is free when you bring a child 2 - 12 years old.

Families who visit on the first Sunday of the month will be met by Family Greeters who will provide an “Art Investigator” Guide which ensures a fun and engaging tour through the galleries. The Greeters will direct families to the art workshop space and help them get started. Art projects can be customized for children 2+ so that each participant can take home a completed artwork. Families can also visit artists working in more than 55 studios on the MarinMOCA campus.

Find more information online marinmoca.org/families/ including directions, parking information, picnicking, and purchasing snacks or lunch.
